The Oregon iDesign Network, sponsored by Western Oregon University’s Center for Academic Innovation, provides a forum for a community of progressive Instructional Designers, Academic Technologists, and Educators to regularly share ideas, philosophies, and principles of good practice.

Our first Symposium was held on July 15, 2016, and the next iDesign Symposium is scheduled for January 27, 2017, at Western Oregon University.


  • Collaborate on and share ideas about design, development, and curricular innovation(s).
  • Serve as a network for collaborations, design resources, and ideas.
  • Explore current and developing instructional technologies.
  • Advocate for access to, and delivery of, effective teaching and learning.


Open to anyone interested in Instructional design, educational technology, and emerging pedagogies.
